Air-Purifying Plants

 

We all know that plants provide us with the oxygen we need to breathe but did you also know that they purify the air? In 1989 NASA collected common house plants and placed them in chambers then pumped in harmful chemicals. After 24hrs they tested the air quality in each chamber and discovered that some plants were able to remove up to 90% of the harmful chemicals. Plants purify the air by taking in harmful gases out of the atmosphere and transporting them into their roots and cells. From there some of the chemicals are broken down by the fungi in the soil and some are stored in the plant.
